    Reminds me of the guy who started that style of playing: Michael Hedges (from Enid, Okla. no less).


    Very talented guys, all of them.

    If you're talking about John Butler, he uses acrylic nails and as do a lot of acoustic players who play with that picking style.

  13. Nope. Kaki cleared that up in an old FAQ on her website. Speaking of her, I love Kaki's first two albums. The third one, not so much... she's a really good fingerstyle guitarist, though. A lot of people got hung up on her "Playing With Pink Noise" song/video because it had the percussive techniques in it, but it's really a very poor song compared to her other material.

    Also check out these guys (I don't know if any of the vids had them, I didn't look at them:)):

    Don Ross
    Tommy Emmanuel
    Andy McKee (who was mentioned above, but worth mentioning again)

    Michael Hedges is an absolute must if you like that kind of guitar playing... he was a brilliant musician. :(

    I had not heard of Leo Kottke until I checked out Clone with him and Michael Gordon. Holy crap. It's crazy good.
